Invista Completes $15M Renovation of Texas Wetlands
Victoria, TX, November 1, 2019-Invista’s Victoria, Texas, site has completed a 15-month, multi-million-dollar investment project to renovate its 53-acre wetland.
In addition to removing solids and sediment that had slowly accumulated over the years, the site made improvements in the original wetland design, including redesigning the first phase of ponds to sediment basins that allow for easier maintenance in the future while providing sediment accumulation protection for the second phase and habitat zones where the water polishing occurs. In addition, 50,000 plants were added to the renovated area. The vegetation was strategically placed for aesthetics and animal habitat.
In addition to the wetland’s role in the site’s biotreatment process, it also serves as an outdoor environmental classroom through a long-standing collaboration with the Victoria Independent School District (VISD).
